Tottenham Hotspur, which needs to strengthen its central defender, is stepping up efforts to recruit Jean-Clerc Todibo of Ligue 1 OGC Nice.
“Tottenham started negotiations to sign Todibo in January. He is at the top of Tottenham’s recruitment list. The deal with Nice is not easy, but the discussion has begun,” said Fabrizio Romano on his SNS.랭크카지노
The central defender is a position that Tottenham should reinforce first in the winter transfer market. Key defender Mickey Van Der Pen injured his hamstring and will not be able to play until next year. Vice-captain Christian Romero is outstanding, but there is a risk of being sent off due to his rough defense.
Tottenham’s radar system sees Todibo as a player. Starting his professional career with Ligue 1 Toulouse in France, Todibo moved to FC Barcelona in the Spanish Primera Liga in January 2019, but was not fully established. He moved to Schalke 04, Portugal’s Benfica, and Nice on loan.
Todibo moved fully to Nice in July 2021. Nice spent 8.5 million euros to bring in Todibo. Todibo became the team’s starting centre-back after joining Nice. He scored one goal in 40 official matches in the 2021/22 season. Last season, he played in 46 matches.
Todibo is solid in Nice again this season. Todibo has one assist in 14 games during the 2023/24 season. Thanks to Todibo’s outstanding performance, Nice has emerged as the league’s least lost team by allowing only nine goals in Ligue 1. Nice ranks second after Paris Saint-Germain with 10 wins, five draws and two losses (35 points) in 17 games.
According to Romano, Tottenham recently talked to the player. Tottenham is active in signing Todibo, but it is unclear whether their wishes will be easy. It is unlikely that Nice will easily give up its main center back during the season. Manchester United is also watching Todibo, so competition for recruitment is inevitable.
